About this grant

This grant supports the general purposes of the Network of European Foundations for Innovative Cooperation, a nonprofit membership association based in Brussels. Its goal is to strengthen philanthropic cooperation among foundations, associations, and other nongovernmental organizations in Europe. The network manages joint, donor-funded programs related to building social capital, citizens’ rights, global governance, education, and culture. During 2008, the network supported a range of initiatives in which major European foundations collaborated on issues of youth empowerment, HIV/AIDS, citizen engagement, cultural policy development, integration and migration, religion and democracy, philanthropy development, and Europe’s role on global social issues. The network has 13 members and engages many other foundations, public donors, and other types of philanthropic organizations in its projects.
